The owners of this impressive dwelling needed an architectural design outcome that respected the highland landscape while giving an unhindered view of the night sky. Following discussions with their builder A.N. Fraser of South Laggan, a bespoke version of Glazing Vision’s Ridgeglaze Rooflight was the ideal solution for this.
This custom-built opening skylight is a prime example of Glazing Vision’s design and manufacturing expertise as combines their Ridgeglaze and Sliding Over Roof rooflights to create a stunning home observatory within the homeowner’s immaculate modern house.
The standard Ridgeglaze rooflight is a fixed product – with no moving parts. Its key advantage is that it allows light into the dwelling on both returns by being placed over the apex of a pitched roof. Glazing Vision’s experienced team of CAD designers and engineers take this concept further still by motorising it, allowing it to glide over the roof, opening up the apex to give a full panoramic view of the majestic Highland landscape. The end result is a hybridised version of the Glazing Vision’s Ridgeglaze and Sliding Over Roof rooflights.
